Thousands of years ago, in the fertile land between the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers, a new civilization flourished. The leaders of the powerful and independent kingdoms were believed to be the earthly representatives of the gods. These leaders developed this new culture, which would last for thousands of years. Many of the most important scientific and cultural inventions would develop under the rule of these leaders. Farmers would discover the wheel and use it for the oxcarts needed to bring produce to market. The characters of cuneiform, the earliest form of writing, were invented long before the Egyptians developed their own hieroglyphics.

Take care! It is your responsibility to see that your dynasty grows and prospers in this land. You must use your four leaders: the King, the Priest, the Merchant, and the Farmer, to accomplish your goal of forging strong kingdoms out of the fledgling settlements that dot the landscape. If necessary, you will further your dynasty's aims at the expense of your neighbors. As the lands available to control are limited, conflicts and takeover attempts are the order of the day.

The key to your victory, however, does not rest in military conquest alone! You must develop all four areas of civilization: Politics, Religion, Trade, and Agriculture. Each of these areas is the responsibility of a different leader, and you must use all four of your leaders together to secure your destiny. No area can be neglected, or your dynasty will be left in the dust. Foresight and careful planning are essential if you want your dynasty to be remembered in the annals of history!

This is arguably Reiner Knizia's best game.
